Ukraine's military said Sunday it would not pull back its troops from the frontline until all sides abide by a ceasefire under the terms of a new peace plan.
"One of the main points (of the Minsk agreement) is the principle concerning the ceasefire. The other points follow that," said National Security and Defence Council spokesman Andriy Lysenko. "But the first point has not yet been fulfilled, so we cannot speak about the other points."
He added: "If (Ukrainian forces) are withdrawn, it will be done simultaneously with the Russian troop withdrawal."
